The college cheerleading rules for 2016-17 have been published at http://www.cheerrules.org/aacca-college , including a summary of changes at the end of the page.

There have been very few changes to the college rules for the past 4 or 5 years. Similar to changes at the high school level this year, the rules committee has made several changes to this year’s rules, which will allow new skills and more creativity at the college level.

As with all rules limitations, the most important safety element for teams is that they follow skill progressions for each stunt group and stay within their proper skill level before advancing to the next level.
